Jonathan joined Watkins and Gunn as a trainee solicitor in January 2019 having previously worked as a paralegal in the industrial disease department at a large Cardiff practice.
Jonathan has significant experience of claims brought by serving members of the Armed Forces and veterans, against the Ministry of Defence, ranging from noise-induced hearing loss claims to claims for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Prior to joining the legal profession, Jonathan was the founding Branch Secretary of a GMB branch situated in Cardiff, where he remains as a member and maintains a keen interest in the activities. Indeed, it was his time as a workplace representative and branch secretary that inspired him to become a solicitor and he chose Watkins and Gunn due to our extensive experience in working with trade unions.
Having already completed a BA Hons degree at the University of South Wales in 2009, Jonathan returned to higher education to study the Graduate Diploma in Law at Swansea University in 2015. After completing the course with a Commendation he undertook the Legal Practice Course at Swansea, bringing his studies to an end in 2017.
Jonathan is currently working within the Public Law team as part of his ongoing training to become a Solicitor and is also involved in the firm’s work in representing victims of the contaminated blood scandal at the Infected Blood inquiry.
